In Helen Aguirre Ferré’s July 27 column, War is not inevitable, she demands that the United States, and most particularly President Obama “reengage in the job he was elected to do.” I am offended by her assertion that Obama is somehow not giving the war his full attention.

I offer, as just one illustration in opposition to Aguirre Ferré’s contention, the fact that Secretary of State John Kerry has been, until recently, in the region, engaging with the warring parties and their neighbors to end the conflict.

While one might want to believe that Kerry is acting as a concerned citizen, it is fantasy to pretend he is not there as the president, and the country’s representative.
